Hi there! Give a brief history of IMMORTAL SHADOW, music style, and the members.
At the beginning we were just 5 guys playing versions of our favorite bands but we wanted to create our own songs, so we started to compose our first EP. This first EP had a lot of Heavy/Thrash Metal influences. It was very fulfilled for us, so after recorded the 2nd EP, we wanted to go further in music’s world and recorded our first album whereby a lot of people is listening us all over the world. The album has a very powerful sound with an own style.
Immortal Shadow are now: Samu (vocals), Ray (guitar,chorus), Kalim (guitar), Matt (bass,chorus) and Anibal (drums)
Give in more detail, some information about your album ‘Horror Circus’ and how well it sells?
The essence of the album is the melodies combined with aggressive riffs whereby you can appreciate influences of other styles like Viking Metal or Modern Metal.
The album is having a great reception; we are impressed with the support that we are receiving.
IMMORTAL SHADOW is independent band, are you guys looking for a label right now or you’d like to be an independent for now?
Some labels were interested in the band, but we are beginners now and we didn’t have enough resources for that, so we will continue being independent for now.
What is the difference between your latest and the very first records?
The real difference between then and now is that we have already found our style; we have defined it and now with lots of years of experience we are composing our original concept of music.
What inspires IMMORTAL SHADOW music and lyric writing? What does IMMORTAL SHADOW lyrics talk about?
When we compose the music and the lyric, we want to express the feelings that we have in that moment but the main theme when we do it, is the idea of a decadent civilization, reflecting in our music and lyrics how is decaying the society.
The main lyric topics are about reflexive themes about that but we speak about mythological things and horror stories too.
Do you play live often? Do you like abroad gigs?
We are now at our “Horror Circus Tour” playing some dates all over Spain.
We hope that in a short time, when the band gains some reputation outside Spain, we could do an European Tour or at least get some dates.
How often does the band practice and work on new material?
We practice twice a week our live show and at least 1 or 2 days are dedicated to create new material for the next album, we know that we have a very hard way to reach our goal and we must work if we want to get it.
How did the band come up with the name IMMORTAL SHADOW and tell what does it means for you?
The name of the band was inspired by the concept of the immortality, is a fact that all the alive things have a shadow and that shadow is following us to any site that we go, and if something has an Immortal Shadow it will be eternal, like the music.
What does the band plan on doing in near time?
We want to complete this year with a lot of gigs to gain reputation in Spain and after that we are thinking in the possibility of record our second album at the end of the next year.
Any message to Sick and Destroy readers?
We are grateful for the support that we are receiving from all the Medias and the fans, that’s very nice for us because this is our first album and we are very excited.
From Spain, STAY BRUTAL!
